When the British gangland drama, Top Boy, returns to television, there will be a new face on screen—Drake.

The London-based show was canceled after its second season but Drake was such a fan that he reportedly purchased the rights to the show, which is now set to return for a third season. Producers of the series have said that the rapper and former Degrassi star will have a "major role" in the new season, according to Daily Mirror.

"We met up to start talking about the show and we are working out a role for him," Ashley Walters, who stars as "Dushane" on the show Daily Mirror. "He loves acting, of course he wanted a part. He's going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it."

Walters went on to say that working with Drake was nothing like you'd expect, given his level of fame.

“He is such a down to earth, nice guy," he said in the interview. "He’s so famous you would expect him to be this crazy character but he’s actually quite boring, in a good way. I had a meeting with him and I brought all of my kids along. My eldest was chatting away in his ear for ages and he was just cool.”

The third season of Top Boy will return to Netflix in 2018. Rapper Skepta is also set to star.
